DAY 2 : Gevrey Chambertin - Vougeot - Paris

The Côte de Nuits is less than a kilometer wide. It is squeezed between the plains to the East and the hills to the West.

With its medieval vat-house and presses, Cistercian cellar and original kitchens, it forms a unique architectural whole, attracting lovers of history, architecture and wine.  It is also the headquarters of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin which promotes Burgundy wines.
